Simplify and control the purchase of non-sourced goods

What happens when your employees need those one-off or emergency purchases for which sourcing doesn't make sense? Finding and buying these spot buy items from a large number of suppliers can be costly and time consuming. Qui plus est, ces produits non-sourcés peuvent représenter non moins de 15 % des dépenses indirectes de votre entreprise.*

SAP Ariba Spot Buy, a capability within SAP Ariba procurement solutions, helps you get a handle on those purchases. It provides...

  • an easy and fast way to find and buy what you need, from among more than 10 million items
  • a trusted source of supply from hundreds of pre-enabled suppliers
  • better control because you can customize it according to your policies and procedures

Mode de fonctionnement

SAP Ariba Spot Buy combines traditional business-to-business procurement controls with consumer-like purchasing convenience. Voici comment cela fonctionne :

  1. Find: When an item cannot be found in the company catalog, users search the SAP Ariba Spot Buy catalog, filtering results by category, brand, and price.
  2. Approuver : les règles commerciales configurables et le flux de tâches spécifiques aux achats « spot » suivent les politiques de l'entreprise.
  3. Acheter : l'approbation des demandes d'achat enclenche le passage en caisse, le paiement sécurisé et l'expédition des marchandises.

Désormais, les employés peuvent facilement trouver et acheter les produits non-sourcés dont ils ont besoin. Et avec des données détaillées pour surveiller et concorder les transactions d'achats « Spot », l'approvisionnement peut finalement gérer les dépenses non-sourcées et mieux servir les clients internes.


Suppliers benefit, too

SAP Ariba Spot Buy ensures that suppliers can offer their goods when and where buyers need them. It provides suppliers with a sales channel through which they can not only boost sales to existing customers, but also generate new sales and gain additional market share.
